UK Value Investor is a monthly investment newsletter which focuses on “defensive value investing”. Defensive value investing is an approach to investing which shuns speculation and instead, looks to buy shares in successful businesses at attractive valuations.
My overriding goal is to help investors who want to invest for income and growth, without taking huge risks and without spending every day monitoring the stock market.
About the Editor: John Kingham IMC
I started UKValueInvestor.com as a private blog in order to discuss my interest in value investing with other investors. After more than a decade as passive investor, I gradually turned to value investing between 2005 and 2007. This was partly an attempt to improve my returns, but also to have more control over what I was invested in and also because I found the investing world fascinating.
After a brief spell as a “deep value” investor, I made the switch from simply buying cheap companies to buying quality companies at an attractive price.
In early 2011 I launched the UK Value Investor monthly newsletter, creating a publication I wish had existed when I first because a direct investor.
Unlike many investment writers and commentators, I back my investment strategy with my own money, and I have the vast majority of my net worth invested in exactly the same stocks as the model portfolio (which is included in each issue).
I hold the Investment Management Certificate from the CFA Society of the UK.

I put a lot of hard work into writing and developing the newsletter, so it’s nice to get some positive feedback. You can see some of the things that existing members and others have said about UK Value Investor on the testimonials page:
